What is teamLab Planets?

First, let me briefly introduce TeamLab Planets.

TeamLab Planets is an experiential museum with the concept of a “museum in water,” consisting of seven installations, including four massive art spaces, created by the art collective TeamLab.

Its defining feature is the overwhelmingly immersive art experience that allows visitors to physically enter the art. Comprising four vast art spaces known as the “Water Area” and two gardens known as the “Garden Area,” the museum offers a special ambiance akin to another planet, hence the name “Planets.”

Regardless of language, it captivates people from around the world of all ages and backgrounds with its immersive experience enjoyed through visual and sensory perception, along with its appeal for creating social media-worthy content.

The achievements of TeamLab Planets are remarkable.
